Baked Oatmeal with Fruit

We have been able to add oatmeal back into our meal plans, so it was a nice treat to have this baked oatmeal.  I did cheat a little with the addition of an egg and some maple syrup and we thoroughly enjoyed every bite.  This does take about 5 or 10 minutes of prep time and 35 to 40 minutes of baking which may make it a weekend meal for a lot of people.  The nice thing is there are leftovers so you can enjoy it for several days.  I just add a little more coconut milk when heating it up.

Baked Oatmeal with Fruit
Makes 4-6 servings

1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
1/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans, lightly toasted, divided
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pinch of salt
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 cup milk (I used coconut milk)
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly (I used ghee)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2-3 ripe bananas, peeled and sliced 1/2-inch thick
1 cup blueberries, divided

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Lightly grease a 2-quart baking dish.  In a medium bowl, combine the rolled oats, half of the nuts, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.  Stir with a fork to combine.  In a liquid measuring cup, combine the maple syrup, milk, egg, butter, and vanilla.  Spread the sliced bananas in a single layer over the bottom of the baking dish.  Top with half of the berries.  Sprinkle the dry oat mixture over the fruit in an even layer.  Pour the liquid ingredients evenly over the oats.  Sprinkle the remaining nuts and berries over the top.

Bake for 35-40 minutes, until the top is browned and the oats have set.  Let cool 10 minutes before serving.
